The Cutest Little Detective Ever

Detective Pikachu

Directed By:

I must preface this by saying I’ve never played PokĂ©man. I considered playing it once but was generally to lazy to download it and didn’t want it taking up so much space on my phone.

But Pikachu is the cutest little thing ever and I will likely soon have a stuffed version of him.

Book One & the Backstabbing is Already Out of Control

The Iron King

The Iron King

By: Maurice Druon

Being in the mood (well a week ago anyway) I jumped at the chance to read The Iron King. George R.R. Martin himself called it “the original Game of Thrones,” plus it’s the start of a series based on the 100 Years War.

And it was translated from French so I can pat myself on the back for reading another translated book 🙂 Priorities right?

The Bells Marks My First Real Fear for the Books

sad dany in game of thrones

So The Bells happened.

I’m going to talk about the last episode of Game of Thrones which did in some fairly major characters (in more ways than one) and why I’m worried about the books for the first time and not just that Martin probably won’t finish them.

Disclaimer one: If you don’t want to hear anything at all criticizing the show fair to you. Don’t read.

Obviously SPOILERS and swearing! Definite swearing in this one.

The Good & Bad of Fandom

The Princess and the Fangirl

By: Ashley Poston

Today I just want to talk about something happy and not the ringing of the bells- though it does involve fandom.

The Princess and the Fangirl is Ashley Poston’s second novel about what happens at ComicCon  Excelisor Con and to my surprise I actually enjoyed this one more than Geekerella which I did not expect to in the first few chapters.

We finally, finally got the trailer for IT Chapter 2. Looks great so far. This is my second most anticipated film of the year- well first now that Endgame has past. Hopefully it will deliver like Endgame.

Creating Your Own Revenge

You Must Not Miss

You Must Not Miss

By: Katrina Leno

I don’t know what sold me on this book more the idea that a desperate girl’s fantasy world actually becomes reality or that line on the cover, “Imagine the perfect revenge.”

Okay probably 60% revenge and the rest the fantasy world.

GOT: Thoughts and Unpopular Opinions on Dany… Spoilers!

dany game of thrones

So I wasn’t going to write about Thrones until it was over but oh boy the Dany stuff and in a lot of ways the reaction that’s spun up around it. I feel like I have to work some things out and write through it.

WARNING: Spoilers through episode four! FYI there are spoilers about the end that seem to be leaning toward true. I’m not going to talk about them here but just be careful if you’re out there on the Internet.

Disclaimer: If you are enjoying the show and don’t want to hear anything bad about it that’s wonderful! Enjoy it. I get it. No one’s stopping you. Don’t read this. There’s a lot of good things and hard work on this show but for what its worth my biggest problem with the show is and has always been the writing.

And what it might mean for the books but for now this is just about the show.

A Fairy Tale Out of Time… in more Ways than One

Enchantment

Enchantment

By: Orson Scott Card

I’ve been collecting fairy tale retellings recently and yeah for me for actually reading one! I was drawn to Enchantment (despite not being the biggest fan of Card) for one reason: the time element.

For Sleeping Beauty is out of time and Ivan (circa early 90’s) first goes back in time with her to her world and then she travels forward to ours. Getting a bit ahead of myself though.

5 Most Relatable Big Bang Theory Episodes

Amy and Sheldon in the BBT

The Big Bang Theory is coming to an end soon and while I do agree its nowhere near as funny as it once was the show seems to get so much hate it kind of surprises me. It’s a sweet reliable show.

And more than that at times its helped me deal with stress and my own anxiety so I thought I’d give it some love with the 5 Most Relatable Episodes of The Big Bang Theory.

A Lot of Trouble for One Finger

The Night Tiger

The Night Tiger

By: Yangsze Choo

Grade: A

See this is one of those books that make me realize I could never be a book character because if I came into possession of a severed human finger I would toss it and run screaming not be like oh, mysterious! Let’s go digging!

Especially when you find out the last person that had it is dead. But that’s just me!
